This is going to be pretty simple guys... play your games.. and play the game the right way. This means TYPICALLY trying to avoid the following things...
Pitching Rotation: 4 man rotation MIN. if you are found to be abusing this and accumulating too many starts with a specific pitcher(s) you will have that pitcher(s) suspended for post season play. This means if we play a 36 game season.. NO SP should have more than 8 appearances.
Showing bunt only to F with the pitcher or draw infield in
Fast pitching, not allowing batter to access bench or bullpen
Countless pickoff attempts
** A team may not carry more than 2 CPs on their MLB team** added 3/21/11
** A team may not carry more than 6 SPs on their MLB team** added 3/21/11
**You MAY play your game in any of the 30 current MLB Stadiums** added 5/24/11
**PLEASE Hard wire your internet connection** there is no way to truely enforce this as a rule, but i encourage EVERYONE to actually plug their internet cable into the back of their PS3. I am fully aware that everyone already believes that their internet connection is great and couldnt possibly be whats causing lag... but trust me.. even if your connection says it has a 100% signal strength on a wireless connection.. hard wiring will improve your connection and gameplay for MLB the Show... i know from experience.
Now i do understand that there are times in the game were some of these things are acceptable. Example, i dont think it would be uncommon for a speed player to show bunt then try slapping it past the infield. Doing this ONCE IN A WHILE is acceptable, DO NOT ABUSE IT, and it doesnt mean you try it with a power hitter.
For those of you who know me, you know i am pretty easy going and dont have a lot of rules. i just want you guys to play the game how it should be played, do that and we wont have an issue.
Resolved Games - by now we all understand how the schedule works on the game. i have set the league to allow me to resolve a game up to 24 hours after expiration, after that the CPU will pick the winner. I have made it very clear to all of you that i want you using this website to schedule your games. Reason is because it is the only way i can see who is actively trying to play their games. If you and your opponent can not play the game in time, you have UP TO 24 hours after deadline to get it in, BUT the game must be scheduled on the FORUM in the proper series scheduling thread. if it is not, you risk me resolving the game so we can advance the schedule. I ALWAYS CHECK THE CURRENT SERIES SCHEDULING THREAD BEFORE RESOLVING GAMES, remember that.
IF i notice a pattern of you continually not playing your games i will talk to you, but you will be running the risk of loosing your team. So play your games and play them on time.
Follow these rules and be respectful to other league members, i am all for rivalry and talking a little trash, BUT DO NOT CROSS THE LINE.
Check the Free Agent section for rules regarding Free Agents
If you have a complaint regarding the league or someone in the league, send me a PM on the forum, DO NOT use the message boards to start shit. Message me privately, and we will go from there.
Respect the game, respect each other, or i'll find your replacement.
